1 Propellants

2 History of Explosia a.s. SINCE 1920 Production of smokeless powders, black powders and explosives in Explosia a.s. has a long tradition. The company was established in 1920 under the name Czechoslovak Joint-stock Factory for Explosive Materials in Prague. Production plant was erected in Semtín near Pardubice (in 1921). In 1934 the name of the company was changed to Explosia. Later, in 1958, the company merged with its affiliated company Synthesia and other companies to East Bohemian Chemical Works Synthesia n.p. After 1990 Synthesia was divided to parts and one of them, the producer of explosives, was named Explosia again. Explosia joint-stock company was founded in 1998 and in 2002 all shares were transferred to governmental structure. Since 2002 is Explosia a.s. fully owned by government of Czech Republic. The Research Institute of Industrial Chemistry (VÚPCH), as a part of Explosia a.s., can offer know-how in R&D of propellants and explosives. Explosia a.s. produces explosives and powders for commercial and military purposes, combustible 125 mm APFSDS-T tank ammunition, 155 mm bimodular charge system, rocket propellants and black powders.

3 Types of propellants Explosia a.s. produces two basic types of powders single base powders and double base powders with certain percentage of nitroglycerine. Triple base propellants are also produced with main application for 155 mm ammunition. The powders are produced in the form of flakes, extruded tubular or seven perforated grains or spherical grains. Explosia a. s. produces many different propellants for all commonly used calibers. Single base powders (marking S) Nitrocellulose is the main component (90-98 %) of single base powders. Various additives such as stabilizers, surface treatment agents, flame reducing agents and ingredients affecting the burning characteristics are used as well. The shape of the powder grain is cylindrical, single or multi perforated, or flake. Most single base propellants produced in Explosia a.s. are surface coated to achieve the progressiveness of burning. Single base propellants are used mainly in handguns, antiaircraft guns, recoilless systems and howitzers. Double base powders (marking D) In addition to nitrocellulose powders double base powders contain also other energetic components nitro esters, usually nitroglycerine (10-38 %). These powders contain also small percentage of stabilizers or other additives as single base powders. Double base powders are of higher energetic value than single base powders. Their calorific value varies between and kj/kg, ballistic performance is better. The shape of powder grain is cylindrical, single perforated, spherical or flake. Quality assurance Explosia a. s. guarantees, that each lot of powder will provide the loaded cartridges with required velocity and pressure parameters. To achieve this, the powders produced are subjected to strict quality control. Physical (dimensions, bulk density, water content), chemical (composition, ash, stability) and ballistic parameters are determined with cartridges loaded with powder conditioned for 24 hours at recommended temperatures and 60±5 % humidity. Quality management system, as to the extent corresponding with ISO 9001 standard, was introduced in the company in Since 2003, after successful passing through the re-certification audit, Explosia a.s. has become the holder of the certificate according to standard system ISO 9001: 2000 and in 2004 the holder of certificate of conformity of quality system with AQAP 110 requirements. Research and development of propellants Research is performed in the field of production technologies of smokeless powders, combustible masses, propellants, their physical structure, methods of parameters determination, stability problems and analytical procedures for determination of powder composition, processing properties of nitrocellulose etc. Development work involves solution of propelling charges for small calibre ammunition up to 155 mm, modular charges 155 mm, mortars up to calibre 120 mm, rocket motors up to calibre 122 mm, kinetic energy (KE) ammunition for calibres up to 125 mm, including technology and technological equipment. Research and development in the field of measuring of ballistic parameters involves measuring in weapons and closed vessels. Development in the field of ballistic simulators includes evaluation and simulation programmes. Packaging All here stated powders can be packed into: Cardboard boxes Fibreboard drums 500 g or 1000 g containers for reloading purposes The powders are packed into fibreboard or cardboard drums or boxes with conductive PE bags. The quantity of powder contained in a drum varies mostly between 8 and 50 kg according to the individual type of powder and the risk connected with its inflammation. The powders can be packed also into other types of containers (hermetic steel container etc.) This requires an agreement with the producer of the powder. The containers used shall meet the requirements of the rules of transport of dangerous goods.

17 17Pistol and Revolver Propellants propellants Ammunition was cleaned during last years from heavy metals by changing of design. Frequently used compounds emitting heavy metals were changed for clean or green and design of bullets was changed to prevent lead pollution during shooting. LowTox propellants are openning new line of products produced by Explosia a.s., which is next logical step following job done on bullets and primers on ammunition. Powders and products of combustion are as low toxic as possible. Fist product was introduced for 9 mm Luger and tests were done with Sellier & Bellot NonTox primer. Main advantages: No toxic stabilizer and no toxic product of ageing of powder Reduced quantity of toxic products of burning (CO, HCN, etc.) Unburned residues of powder less than 1 % Thermal uniformity of ammunition within range from -54 to +52 C Stability of powder according to STANAG 4582 D double base - tubular, impregnated 680 g/l 9 mm Luger NONTOX 7.5 g (8.0 g) g 380 m/s bar no other D Further details upon request. 900 g/l 9 mm Luger FMJ 7.5 g g 375 m/s bar 9 mm Brow., 7.65 Brow.
